Degree opens doors for students who are not able to study on campus full-time
Wednesday, November 21, 2012
Students gather for a three-week residency on campus per year and work individually with faculty mentors, allowing access to advanced study for working adults.
The Expressive Therapies Division at Lesley University - home to the first Ph.D. in Expressive Therapies and one of the most recognized Expressive Therapies programs in the world - provides a meaningful connection between the arts, theory and practice in clinical training, and prepares expertly qualified providers of mental health services.
To make this transformative Master’s program accessible to more students, Lesley has introduced the new low-residency option, which is ideal for students who are not able to get to campus on a weekly basis. The Low-Residency M.A. in Expressive Therapies welcomes students to Lesley’s campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for summer residencies. Between residencies, students continue their studies online with the Lesley faculty and through supervised field experience in their home communities.
“Lesley students have enjoyed great success in low-residency models in other disciplines, including our Ph.D. in Expressive Therapies,” said Dr. Mitchell Kossak, the program’s Division Director. “Expressive therapies evolved on Lesley’s campus and continues to have a powerful impact on people’s lives. By providing a means towards a master’s degree that’s accessible for more people, we look to enhance the number and quality of practitioners in the field.”
Lesley’s Expressive Therapies program exposes students to multiple art modalities in support of Lesley’s belief that all the arts in psychotherapy enrich expressive therapists, including visual arts, dance, drama, poetry, literature and music. The new Low-Residency Master’s Degree in Expressive Therapies is available for the expressive arts (intermodal), art, dance, and music therapy specializations.
Lesley is now enrolling for the new low-residency master’s degree in Expressive Therapies. Expressive Therapies applications will be reviewed on a space-available basis. All applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their applications as soon as possible. Please note, International Applicants must complete their application by March 1.
